Prairies once spread far across North America but have dwindled in the past few decades. We geek out over prairie land and want to see it restored to its former, swaying-in-the-breeze glory! Prairies provide a host of benefits to the local ecosystem: food and shelter for wildlife, as well as soil conservation for sustained agricultural needs.
Our designers are passionate about working with clients to create ecologically sound grasslands for any size property. Whether building an urban microprairie or converting large commercial spaces, we have the skill and expertise for all needs. Let’s rebuild low-maintenance havens for wildlife together.
FOOD GARDEN CONSULTATION & INSTALLATION
As concerns rise about agricultural pesticides, the trend toward starting community food gardens continues to grow. Our geeks can assess properties to determine the best placement for gardens. Our team will clear the area, amend the soil, plant the crops, and assist throughout the entire growing season. We want to make sure your food is healthy and free of pests! If you have extended concerns about contaminated soil in inner urban areas, we can also construct raised garden beds to suit your needs.
A rain garden is a shallowly depressed soil bed with mounded dirt gradients around the perimeter that allows excess rainwater to be quickly and effectively drained into the soil. This drainage, in turn, feeds back into a natural underground water store, or aquifer.
Many of these types of gardens qualify for conservation grants that can cover up to 50% of the project cost. We would love to help you navigate through the application process and to defray the costs of your dream garden. Read more about conservation districts here!
